I just bought an additional VL extension for the CMS GE I just received cause i felt it need a balance to the outfield table, and being a little blade shy I want to put a little more distance between me and mister sharp..It will also be needed when I'm going to be ripping some 4 meter long stock in the next couple of weeks.. I also bought the centering cone for the template work with the OF 1010

I ordered the extra VL extension today as well , just got to remount / replace the switch as its in the wrong place

Wonder why Festool didn't think of it DOH

Yes I see it can't be mounted with the switch in place, l will need to make some sort of movable yet sturdy mounting bracket for it..

John

Thanks. First project will be a work table then a chest of drawers for my 3 year old daughter. It's going to take a while as I am recovering from a back surgery. I am just trying to get everything ordered so that I will be ready to start when able.

Because I wanted the TS75 with a metric scale, I purchased one today. I was planning to purchase it later this fall. Since the MFT/3 is discounted 10% if purchased at the same time, I had no choice but to purchase it as well.

I'm just waiting on delivery of a SYS 2 today to finish tidying up the storage of my recent CMS delivery.

While I'm waiting I finally get to fire up in anger the CMS-GE, with TS55 and OF inserts.  I only went for the sliding table to go with it as with the DF 500, Domino set and extra dust hose it was getting a little ££££.

Just recived this lot.  [big grin]

CTL SYS
ETS EC 150/5
EHL 65 EQ
SYSLITE DUO and stand
OF1010 EQB-Plus set and have added the trimming attachments.

Also picked up 3 Sys-Midi 3TL systainers.
And a Sys-Roll which is in use on the jobsite already. 

Thinking now about getting a box trailer to carry all my systainers, Kapex and table saw.
My van drawer just isn't big enough to take all my systainers, plus my saws and dog cage.

This pic is the drawer in my old van, taken last year, I've since purchased more of the grey and green boxes.
Kapex on UG cart, Of1400, LR32set, RO90, Vecutro, CTL Midi, Domino 500, MFS400 + 700, Syslite duo, EHL65, ETS/EC 150/5, sysvac, OF1010

I bought the DWC 18-2500 Set and PDC 18/4 earlier this week.

The job I have on at the moment is to fit out 2 new build homes.

I have 150 Sq. metres of T&G red deal flooring to install, and all the drywall, but didn't fancy using loose screws (approx 16,000).
I damaged my hand late last year, (I cannot make a complete fist yet), so small items slip out my hand.

I don't use air, or gas, nailers for first fix (framing), so I needed a driver with a bit more muscle, without the noise of an impact model.

I have given both tools a good workout so far, and both have exceeded my high expectations of Festool quality.

I have cycled about 3000 screws through the DWC into the floor, without a single jam or misfire, while standing up, making it more comfortable and faster.

The PDC has plenty of torque, even at speed 3 and 4, to drive almost any screw size that I would use. I did turn it down to speed 1 to drive 7.5 x 120mm concrete screws and it drove them in with little effort.

I would like to hear about anyone else's feedback on the DWC, doesn't get mentioned very often here on the FOG.

Regards, Alan

@AJCruise I've got the older DWC in 12V and also in mains - both Protool. They've only had minor use. I'd sell them in a flash and upgrade to 18V DWC's but for some strange reason they're not on the market here in Oz at the moment.

Kev,
I got the new 5.2Ah batteries with it, it went through 2,000 4x50mm wood screws on one battery charge, and saved me a day's work doing it with loose screws.
The PSC420 , BHC and HKC55 are next on the list.
Not having to drag around cables on the job would make life a lot easier.
I think Festool missed the mark by not making an HKC85 as the 55 variant won't cut 2X stock at 45 degrees. It would have plenty of power using the dual battery format on the TSC

@AJCruise

A dual power HK85 would be an awesome tool (2x18V's or a mains lead), but a dedicated cordless spinning the large blade wouldn't last long.

I'm looking forward to the local release of the HK85, but mostly because of the grooving attachment.

Kev,
You're probably right about the load of a much larger blade, and never thought of the spindle cutter option.
I was thinking of something just large enough to cut through 2X with the thinner kerf width.

I hope Festool are looking at DeWalt's new 54/60V Flexvolt system.
The Kapex and Precisio, which are due an upgrade soon, would be ideal candidates for this, as well as the more powerful tools (TS75, HK85, OF1400/2200 etc.)

Thanks again for the feedback, Alan

Ordering the 466353 VERBINDUNGSSATZ 91549 IPM-VP-05-AV-ST corner threaded insert for the MFS so I can expand the possible configurations I'm getting two, I'd get four but they are expensive so l will wait on the last two.

I am also getting 4 FSZ 120 clamps so I will then have a total of 6 for using with the MFS setup.

An additional Set of MFS VB 700 extensions. My setup will then consist of 2x MFS 400, 2x MFS VB 700 and a MFS VB 1000 .

A FS2 1400 LR 32 guide rail combined with my FS2 1900 it will get me to 3300 length. For a mobile setup FS2 3000 isn't really practical.

PDC 18/4 needed a new drill with a 13mm chuck after my t-18 was stolen had been using my CXS for most drilling and anything over 9mm I would use my old bosch SDS what was a bit of a pain especially if there was no power handy.

I was waiting for my tax rebate before buying anymore tools but managed to knock my CXS of a marina where I am laying some decking into the salt water, fished it out but it is not working to well now. But considering how much I abused the poor little thing I am surprised it had lasted the 3 years I had it .

Bought the ETS-EC 150/5, already had an ETS/5 that I bought used and abused but worked great.  The EC is wonderful, much more like the air powered sanders that I used in the 70's at an industrial cabinet shop.

Nothing to get wildly excited about - but I wanted another SYS-1 to hold a (non-Festool) single-task toolkit; was going to go for a Tanos-branded one to get a contrasting colour - but I found that Amazon had the Standard (Compact?) Cleaning Kit (D27/36 K-RS Plus), complete with SYS-1 (and a foam base insert) for less than could I find the empty SYS. £29 inc delivery.

I know that kit is available elsewhere heavily discounted, so it's a modest saving - but welcome nonetheless.

Really sorry to hear your T18 was stolen. Stealing the very tools a man uses to make a living is a low act.

Yes having anything stolen really sucks. Years ago I had about $10k of tools stolen, felt gutted, and have never really caught up from it, particularly on the cordless front.

A Sys-roll, deep toolbox, and Sys-MFT, which I'm not sure I'm gonna keep since I can't lock it on top of any TLocs. I wanted it to go on top of a stack on the Sys-Roll as a small movable work station in case I wanted to clamp something small on it while working at the other tables.  May look to see if I can swap the top with a Sys-1.

Just ordered another two Festool 492000 Dust Hood OF 1400, pulled to hard on the vac hose and yanked the hood into the 1/2" router bit.  Was routing slots and holes into 1/4" polycarbonate air diffuser for a refrigerated case.  Luckily I have another till these two arrive, hopefull will do better as I have 14 more to rout.  Going to attach my Y adaptor and another hose to claean out the jig rather than keep removing the router hose!  [blink]  [scared]  Just a side note, before buying the Festool routers I use now, five, clean up was a real PITA.  Now I clean up in minutes.   [big grin]
